Does anybody know diff. between escape, absconding, and voluntary abscence????
I was just wondering if anybody knows what the difference between Escape, Absconding & Voluntary Absence is?
My guy friend that was in prison was released to the halfway house here in CR. He ran from there. When he did it before they charged him with Voluntary Absence but he thinks that they are charging him with escape or absconding this time. What is the difference?? I don't think that they can charge him with escape as he was signed out to be at work.
And advice would be helpful. Thanks
I love my husband!

NO MATTER WHAT
Hi! I don't know the difference between the two but I do know my husband pulled the same B.S. and he was charged with escape. He was also signed out on work time and just didn't go back. He got 1 year in addition to his sentence for it. Hope this helps at least a little.
